Preliminary reference ranges for hematologic and total plasma
protein profiles were determined for 9 adult red-capped parrots
(Pionopsitta pileata) (6 males and 3 females) and 6 Vinaceous Amazon
parrots (Amazona vinacea) (2 adult males, 2 adult females, 1 juvenile,
and 1 nonsexed) from the Curitiba Zoo, Parana, Brazil. For both
red-capped parrots and Vinaceous Amazon parrots, adult males had higher
red blood cell counts than adult females. Regarding white blood cell
distribution, differences because of sex were also found for both
species of parrots.
